For about the last year I have been having a problem with my clutch, I'm a drag racer so I need a clutch that is easy to slip out of the hole. My clutch has been almost impossible to slip, I've been telling myself for the last year that its just user error, while in the back of my mind I knew it had to be a clutch issue.

I've changed the clutch pack several times, changed the way I launch, everything. I haven't checked my clutch basket though...

Well tonight I decided to just check the basket over really good and found this

Dang, yeah I'd say thats not helping. If you're pullin the basket, it might be a good time to weld the rivets or have stronger ones put in it.

Good news is your getting it done!
